I'm more than happy to revert r158009, I originally added it to reduce
the amount of debug information since often people would not be trying
to add break points or debug through an artificial function. Alexey's
patch and motivation, however, lead me to believe that this was
originally incorrect as we may want a backtrace with information and
line numbers that includes artificial functions like global

Either of you have an argument against reverting it?
